Dragon Gyas


From world-renowned game designer KAWASAKI Susumu comes Dragon Gyas, an incredibly unique figure-based board game.

The game features a one-of-a-kind system with pieces following two rulesets on a single board:

· Giant Robot (Giant Dragon): Strategically sequence your actions according to your opponent's moves.
· Knights (Dragonewts): Carefully watch your opponent and find the ideal move for the situation, similar to chess.

The game is typically played 1 vs. 1.
The player on the Knights side plays with 1 Giant Robot and 7 Knights, while the player on the Dragons side plays with 1 Giant Dragon and 7 Dragonewts.
The first player to defeat the opponent's Giant Robot or Giant Dragon is the winner.

The Giant Robot and Giant Dragon's moves are executed in sequence using cards.
Cards contain 1 of 3 actions: Move, Attack or Special. Players select a certain amount of cards before the start of the game.
These choices determine your strategy for the rest of the game.
Knights and Dragonewts have a predetermined Movement attribute and Vitality attribute as well as two unique abilities.

There are also plans for expansion sets in the future, allowing you to enjoy multiple variations of the game.
>A single player/cooperative scenario mode and 2 vs. 2 mode are also planned to be implemented.
